The Golden Eagles travel to Hershey Park Arena in Pennsylvania this weekend for a two-game series against the Lebanon valley Flying Dutchman.

LVC has been the losingest team in DIII over the past few years (though it’s not for a lack of trying). They are 0-15 this season after going 0-25, 1-23 and 2-22 the previous three years. They have scored only 1.6 goals/game this year while allowing an average of 5.87 per contest.

They are the seventh-most penalized team in DIII with 22.9 minutes per game. Brockport’s 30th ranked power play will feast on that as LVC stops only 71.9% of the man advantages they face.

Their leading goal scorer is freshman Dan Dempsey (5) and their point leaders are Brad Surdam and Rory Wilkowich (8 points each). They have a two-headed monster in goal with Drazin (.851% and 6.39 GAA) and Turner (.881% and 5.10) sharing time.

Brockport will be victorious in both games and the team must use the weekend to iron out the wrinkles that were shown in the Hobart and Utica games. The Golden Eagles must be at the top of their game when SUNYAC play resumes next weekend and Potsdam and Plattsburgh come to Tuttle North.

Friday’s game against LVC starts at 7:00. Saturday’s affair is a 3:00 matinee.

Both games can be heard on and can be viewed at
